How to Fix the \"It is not found any file specified for ISArcExtract\" Error on Windows
If you are trying to install a game or an application on your Windows PC and you encounter the error message \"It is not found any file specified for ISArcExtract\", you are not alone. This error can occur when the system fails to extract archive files that are required for the installation. This can be caused by various factors, such as corrupted archives, corrupted drivers, lack of system memory, unsupported file paths, or antivirus interference. Fortunately, there are some solutions that you can try to fix this error and install your desired program successfully.
What is ISArcExtract.dll
ISArcExtract.dll is a dynamic link library (DLL) file that is used by some applications to extract large archive files. It is usually located in the same folder as the setup.exe file of the program that you want to install. Sometimes, this file can be missing, corrupted, or blocked by your system, which can lead to the ISArcExtract error.
How to Fix the ISArcExtract Error on Windows
Depending on the cause of the error, there are different methods that you can try to fix it. Here are some of the most common and effective solutions:
Run the setup file as an administrator. Sometimes, the error can be caused by administrative restrictions that prevent you from accessing or modifying certain files. To avoid this, you can run the setup file with elevated rights by right-clicking on it and selecting \"Run as administrator\".[^2^]
Run the setup file in compatibility mode. If you are trying to install an older game or application that was designed for a different version of Windows, you may encounter compatibility issues that can trigger the ISArcExtract error. To solve this, you can run the setup file in compatibility mode by right-clicking on it, selecting \"Properties\", clicking on the \"Compatibility\" tab, checking the box for \"Run this program in compatibility mode\", and choosing a suitable Windows version from the drop-down menu. Then, click on \"Apply\" and \"OK\" to save the changes.[^2^]
Set the setup file at high priority. Another possible reason for the error is that your system does not allocate enough resources to the setup process. To fix this, you can set the setup file at high priority by opening Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc), finding the setup process under the \"Details\" tab, right-clicking on it, selecting \"Set priority\", and choosing \"High\". This will increase the CPU and RAM usage of the setup process and speed up the extraction.[^2^]
Run system file and image scans. Sometimes, system file corruption or image errors can cause problems with extracting archive files. To repair these issues, you can run two built-in tools: System File Checker (SFC) and Deployment Image Servicing Management (DISM). To run SFC, open Command Prompt as an administrator (Win+X+A), type \"sfc /scannow\" and press Enter. This will scan and repair any corrupted or missing system files. To run DISM, open Command Prompt as an administrator again, type \"DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth\" and press Enter. This will scan and repair any errors in your Windows image.[^2^]
Reregister ISArcExtract.dll. If the ISArcExtract.dll file is missing or unregistered in your system, you may need to download it from a reliable source[^1^] and register it manually. To do this, open Command Prompt as an administrator again, type \"regsvr32 isdone.dll\" and press Enter. This will register the DLL file in your system.[^2^]
Increase your virtual memory. Virtual memory is a feature that allows your system to use your storage devices as additional RAM when needed. If your system does not have enough physical memory to extract large archive files, you may need to increase your virtual memory size. To do this, open File Explorer (Win+E), right-click on \"This PC\", select \"Properties\", click on \"Advanced system settings\", click 061ffe29dd
